Picture Sunday – xDuoo TA-10

By | April 13th, 2019|Categories: Headfonia|Tags: , , , , |

The xDuoo TA-10 is a USB-DAC Tube Headphone amplifier from the same quirky brand that brought us the X10T. It sells on Amazon for just under $300USD.

xDuoo TA-10 – The design

Don’t be fooled by the pictures, the xDuoo TA-10 is neither cheap or bulky. If you’ve only seen the stock shot, prepare to be surprised : out of the box it’s almost like you’ve received a mock-up and not the real thing.

The amp has been designed to fit on a computer desk and the overall footprint allows neat installation.… Read the full article

Picture Sunday – Shanling M2X

By | April 6th, 2019|Categories: Headfonia|Tags: , , , , |

Today, we look at Shanling’s latest addition, the M2X. A lighter version of the Shanling M5S with all the good things we loved previously.

Shanling M2X – The design

“Big things come in small packages”

The Shanling M2X leans more toward the M5S than the M2S, it’s basically a M5S in a smaller box. The overall design is almost identical, which is a good thing since the M5S was faultless in this aspect. It’s got the same aluminium case, sandwiched between two glass panels, like an iPhone X and it even comes with the leatherette case EMBEDDED !… Read the full article

By | March 23rd, 2019|Categories: Headfonia|Tags: , , , , , , |

Today, we take a fresh look a the new Cowon Plenue D2. A neat little player, based on an iconic range of players : the Cowon D series.

Cowon Plenue D2 – The design

There is a thing with Korean DAPs, most of the time they look exquisite. Be it the Cowon Plenue L or the Astell&Kern SP1000M, they both look more like pieces of art than DAPs.

The Plenue D2 is on the same path, but at a slower pace.… Read the full article
